. that line way up there, above all others, that line shows deaths from assault in the u.s. we're an extremely violent country, it's true, but look at this. we're not nearly so violent as we used to be. our assault rate peaked in the late 1970s, and awful events like aurora notwithstanding have been falling continuously ever since. within america, the south is by far the most violent region. it has the most deaths from assault. then comes the wests where the shootings happens followed by the midwest and northeast. thanks again to karen for this chart. also, gun ownership is on the decline. the percentage of american households that say they own a pistol or a shotgun is about half what it was 40 years ago, according to the general social survey. and the most recent numbers from gallup which aren't on the graph have show an uptick in gun ownership. although we don't yet know if that is a statistical blip or the beginning of a reversal in the trip. this map, which we made with data from the new england journal of medicine, compares a number of suicides by gun ownership rates. it's four times as h

to you at home for staying with us for this hour. rachel has the night off. in colorado today, the suspect in last week's mass shooting in the denver suburb appears in court for the first time. james holmes had what is called a first advisement this morning. he sat with one of his court apointed attorneys. reporters in the courtroom said his lawyer shielded him from victims of the shooting and the relatives who had come for the hearing. he is not expected to be charged formally in the case until next week. the trial itself could be as much as a year away. prosecutors say the man stormed into a midnight premiere of the new batman movie last week in the city of aurora. he came in with tear gas and guns and wearing enough protective gear that police almost reportedly mistook him for one of their own. though officers arrived in two minutes, he managed to kill 12 people and wound 58 others. he was armed with a pair of glock handguns, a 12-gauge shotgun, and an ar-15 assault rifle. all appear to have been purchased legally. law enforcement in colorado said he had stockpiled bullets

that came out this morning and that is retail sales? >> terrible. martha: what does that tell us about what is going on? >> it is a terrible number. sales in june declined .5%. that is huge decline and unexpected. it tells us the economy is clearly weakening. in may retail sales were down. june retail sales were down some more. and a new survey out of national economists and they say hiring is weakening all over again. so too are the sales figures which we just reported. they have a negative outlook. in fact, most of them are looking for growth rate in the economy of 2% or less. and that is not a solid performance. martha: yeah. there are so many indicators out there, stuart, as you point out that we're hitting yet another rough patch. >> yes, we are. martha: in the economy. stuart, thank you very much. good to see you as always this morning. bill: stuart was talking about the survey released by the national association of business economics. it says u.s. jobs growth appears worse than three months ago. of 67 economists surveyed, only 22% reported rising employment in july. that is down fro
/cheney years, american's approval rating dropped by 20%, 30%, 40%, and that was people who like us. there was the start of two of the longest wars in american history. both of which were started by the bush administration, one of which was started under false pretenlss and both were raging when they left. it was the drowning of a great american city in hurricane katrina. remember mission accomplished? remember 9/11, torture, armstrong williams remember the presidential adviser caught shoplifting repeatedly from target. remember that guy? remember the vice president of the united states shooting a guy in the face. there's a reason george w. bush left office in january 2009 with the lowest approval rating for an outgoing president since galt started asking that question back in the 1930s. and frankly, the vice president, dick cheney, would have killed to get numbers that high. his approval rating was 13% when he left office. part of the headwind that john mccain had running in 2008, trying to run as a republican after george w. bush and dick janney was george w. bush and dick cheney.

"the daily mail" screams this question. who invited party popper romney? request "the sun" called him mitt the twit, and "the daily telegraph" says, mitt romney is perhaps the only politician who could start a trip that was supposed to be a charm offensive by being utterly devoid of charm and mildly offensive. jim, conservative media is actually downplaying romney's missteps. they say he was merely being honest about the olympic games in london, and britain should understand that. is that romney's view? >> well, honestly, carol, mitt romney has done a couple of i

. >> thanks and thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. you know what was a really bad time? the george w. bush presidency was a really bad time. and not just if you were a liberal and you disagreed with george w. bush, just if you were an american, the george w. bush presidency, the bush/cheney years were bad years for us as a country. the national ubunemployment rate went from a little over 4% when he took office to nearly 8% by the time he left. we went from a budget surplus of more than $200 billion to a budget deficit of more than a trillion dollars. after decades of u.s. household income climbing during the 1980s and 1990s, it fell off a cliff in the bush years. after poverty declined in the 1980s and declined in the 1990s, in the bush years, it went up. by the time he left office, 6 million more americans were added to the rolls of americans who didn't have health insurance. wall street in the bush years collapsed. the country was plunged into the worst depression since the great depression in the 1930s. the bush/cheney years were a disaster. they were also a ser
of hardship and uncertainty, you've seen the last few days some of the largest and most important u.s. companies report sagging profits, those who believe that the europe -- situation in europe would not directly affect u.s. companies are beginning to see they were more wrong than right. i think giving as much as you can to big companies, medi medium-sized and small companies around any and everything government will or won't do is critical. extending tax cuts for all americans going to solve all our fiscal cliff issues? no. short of congress being able to do something meaningful, sustainable they should probably extend the cuts for everyone and look forward to the beginning of next spring or next year deal with sequestration, long-term fiscal responsibility, sustainability, but short of that, i don't know how this gives any more certainty, any more comfort. as you've talked on the show many times in the past, to businesses across the nation. what concerns me, you see the front page of the newspapers, europe's crisis hits profits, rising food prices. american consumer and business lea

of state. it is important we attach conditions. it is on the way we can take people with us as we continue to expand our aid budget as a time of economic difficulty at home. if we want a stable and prosperous afghanistan and a safe afghanistan, we need an afghanistan where the role of women is properly respected. >> can i get the prime minster to answer the question a few moments ago? >> there was vote last night in the house of lords. i have a clear view. the government has a clear view about the right way ahead. there will be a motion for the labor party. i hope for a whole government inquiry. if we can't answer that question, people will take a very dim view of an opposition party that stands in the way of inquiry because they don't want to be washing down in public. >> thank you mr. speaker. the olympics are great opportunity to bring our nation together. therefore, does the prime minster display the crimes of some union leader. >> we have in unite unions. >> we are grateful for the police, and county council rescue service. we need real money to support these people and agencies. >>

before us. we just do. so i am very thankful to of the gibson and the other guys around that time, too, that were very good to me -- i am very thankful to althea gibson. we are all in this together, so we have to help each other. >> what do you think has been the biggest change in the last 20 years? >> that was not very long ago. i think it has been an evolution of equipment change. this is really like. -- light. this is like my security blanket. what i told my dad i wanted to play tennis, my dad said, "show me." i went to my neighbors and beg them to give me a job. when i had $8.29 sit up in a mason jar, i said i could not wait any longer and i went to brown's sporting goods and got my first racket. the salesperson said to me, "what kind do you want?" i asked what a dollars and 29 cents would buy. i got it because i loved the color. it was my favorite color. i would sleep with it every night and dream about winning and being number one. so when i see this, i love it. just like blindness, you know, with your blankie -- just like linus. the biggest thing is the materials in the rackets
. >> thank you, you too. and also, thanks to all of you at home for staying with us for the next hour. four years ago this week, presidential candidate senator barack obama was wrapping up a worldwide tour through europe and the middle east. designed to amp up his foreign policy credentials. here's what that looked like. as many as 200,000 people crowded their way into berlin's tear garden park to hear senator obama's vision for the world in july of 2008 and to cheer. and cheer, and cheer some more. >> the greatest danger of all is to allow nuance to divide us from one another, the walls between old allies on either side of the atlantic cannot stand. the walls between the countries with the most and those with the least cannot stand. the walls between races and tribes, natives and immigrants, christians and muslims and jews cannot stand. these now are the walls we must tear down. >> senator obama was greeted abroad like a political rock star. and not just by his tens of thousands of adoring fans. as frank rich put it at the time, senator obama was treated like a, quote, president in waiting
loved him so bad in berlin. he also visited iraq, where he met with the prime minister and top u.s. military commanders in baghdad. and he went to afghanistan where he met with american nato troops and with afghan president karzai, and called for more troops, more focus on the war in afghanistan. for those of you keeping track at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut
contract with the school at the very height of the sandusky investigation. the u.s. times reports he began his talks in january 2011, the very same month he testified before a grand jury. now, months later the $5.5 million deal was finalized as police closed in on sandusky. earlier today i spoke with a "sports illustrated" reporter who said there's a lesson for other schools. >> it's necessary for other schools to take from this and realize that maybe internal investigations periodically are a good thing and maybe ensuring that coaches don't become too powerful and that people don't become afraid of speaking out against coaches. i think that was a major part of this story. i also think it's important that we hold people accountable. the fact that the college president was fired and could be criminally charged is a lesson to other college presidents. >> that was michael mccann. we're told special counsel is being hired to deal with possible ncaa sanctions. >>> west coast headlines are next, "from russia with love" high siberia's loss became seattle's gain. >>> also, casey anthony's life one
begins right now. ♪ ♪ >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. race and mitt romney that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as we reported last night mitt romney was kind of brave to go down to the naacp convention in houston. he knew he would be speaking to folks who very much liked president obama. the analysis of mr. romney's speech is fascinating and says unflattering things about america. here is the backup. nbc news owns a web site directed mostly at african-americans. one of the employees on that web site went on tv yesterday and said this: >> i truly believe that mitt romney went into that room not to speak to the naacp but to speak to his base. if he really intended to speak to this civil rights organization, the oldest in our country, then he might have walked into the room and talked about how we fix basic public education because we know education disrupts poverty. >> bill: we'll get to the speaking to his base remark in a moment. now, either ms. taylor missed it or she is not being honest because during his speech the governor sp
